In 1997 the Institute’s executive committee hired Dr. Helen Mash as their new Director,

to solve the Institute’s increasing financial difficulties. Dr. Marsh is the author of “Finding the Bucks in the Bones” and built a reputation as a financial consultant, helping universities to maximize revenues.

Dr. Marsh’s first major initiative as Director was acquiring worldwide rights to a research project developed by Chrono-Tech, a small relativity lab in Arizona which recently lost its largest government research grant. Half a year later that acquisition led to a world-changing discovery, stunning the scientific community. Dr. Marsh announced the CTX Time Rover, an invention that made time travel possible, allowing scientists to observe dinosaurs first hand.

In 1998, to help subsidize expenses, tours to the Cretaceous Period became open to the public!
